# How many times a day does the earth spin?

 +1 vote! +5 you voted Answer by  kf4vkp (295) The definition of a day is the time it takes for the earth to make one full rotation about it's own axis. So the earth completes one full spin per day. Each half of the rotation around the axis adjusts for the position of the sun to earth, explaining night and day.

Remember, the sun is stationary relative to the position of the earth, so for the sun to appear in the same spot in the sky, the earth has to go through a full rotation. It takes 365 days to orbit around the sun.

However, this is slightly off which makes our year about three hundred and sixty five days plus about a half of a day (. 26). This is the cause for the leap year because every four years we gain one extra day.
